TINLEY PARK, Ill — Thursday, Feb. 2, marks the 15th anniversary of the fatal shootings at a Lane Bryant in southwest suburban Tinley Park.

In addition to a sketch of the murder suspect, an audio recording of his voice from the 911 call continues to be available on the village’s government website.
Police released no new information on Thursday, however.
